I came across these refill wicks while attempting to organize my parents basement. I don't even know if we have a kerosene heater now since we heat our home via wood stove/oil.

My question for you folks, Can I use the wicks for oil lamps? I am going to start a collection of oil lamps since there seems to be a bounty of them at my local goodwill. There's always a use for them I think! I took a picture of the refills but the darn internet is giving me a problem. Gotta love satellite internet on a stormy day!

The wicks are fiber graph. According to the package it is constructed of black graphite impregnanted fiberglass and has a high quality cotton bottom. Suggestions?

Thank you for the thorough directions. :) I'll try it out when I pick up some oil.

Be aware that kerosene was once used in drafty old homes. There are dangerous carbon monoxide levels to deal with set aside soot that collects on everything the smoke come in contact with.
Ill keep that in mind. Thanks Helixx. The kerosene wicks in question got swamped in a basement flooding so I won't be using them. Such a waste. :(
